A master’s in Conservation Technology from Florida Tech prepares students to start a career immersed in biological or ecological conservation practices, or to continue with further graduate study in a PhD program. This is a non-thesis, course-based master's program with a heavy emphasis on basic and applied research.
This interdisciplinary field examines genetics, geographic information systems (GIS) and ecological modeling so students develop the expertise they need to create solutions for today’s most challenging conservation issues. Students delve into climate-change analysis, water quality, and diseases of marine plants and animals. Conservation scientists and ecologists manage, improve, and protect the country’s natural resources.
Graduates possess quantitative and technical skills that are in demand from a wide variety of employers, including environmental consulting and insurance companies, non-governmental organizations, and local, state and federal agencies.
